This drawing of a young boy (the brother of one of our artists) is a composite of 16 abstract drawings done by the entire school--from kindergarten up to teacher. The photograph shown below was manipulated digitally, enlarged and chopped into 16 tiles.
We did not inform the artists that the tiles were part of a larger image. They simply were asked to reproduce what they saw on each tile. Their work was then compiled to form the image you see here.
It is a beautiful result, particularly because it displays the diversity of work within our group. It also, hopefully, demonstrated to the students that breaking an image into its composite parts can help us get closer to a realistic image.
